Ingredients

Patties:
  • 2 5-oz cans Bumble Bee® Solid White Albacore Tuna, drained
  • Zest of 1 lemon and Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 tsp red wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning + ½ tsp set aside
  • 2 tbsp mayonnaise
  • ¼ cup minced red onion
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp onion powder
  • ½ cup crumbled Feta
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ tsp Kosher salt
  • ¼ cup breadcrumbs + ½ cup set aside
Lemon-Dill Yogurt:
  • 1 cup Greek yogurt
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh dill
  • Kosher salt and fresh cracked pepper to taste
Cucumber-Tomato Salad:
  • ½ cup seeded and diced tomatoes
  • ½ cup seeded and diced cucumbers
  • ½ cup minced red onion
  • 2 tbsp diced kalamata olives
  • 2 tsp minced parsley
  • 2 tsp red wine vinegar
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • Kosher salt to taste
Other:
  • 2 tbsp Olive Oil for frying
  • 2 cups shredded Romaine lettuce
  • 4 Brioche buns

Directions

In a large mixing bowl, combine tuna, zest, and juice of lemon, Italian seasoning, red onion, mayo, garlic powder, onion powder, feta, red wine vinegar, egg, and salt. Mix thoroughly; add breadcrumbs and mix again. Form into 4 equal-sized patties. Put formed patties on a plate and place in refrigerator, covered, to chill until firm, about 20-30 minutes (or up to 6 hours, if prepping in advance).

Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, whisk together the yogurt, garlic, lemon zest, lemon juice, and dill. Season with salt and pepper. Chill until ready to use.

In a small bowl, combine tomatoes, cucumbers, red onion, olives, parsley, extra virgin olive oil, and red wine. Salt to taste. Set aside.

When ready to cook patties, combine  ½ cup breadcrumbs, ½ tsp Italian seasoning and a pinch of salt in a shallow bowl or rimmed plate. Coat patties all over in breadcrumb mixture.

Heat 2 tbsp olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once the oil is heated, add tuna patties and cook until lightly browned and crispy, about 5 minutes per side.

Prepare each burger

Liberally spread yogurt across bottom burger bun and put a handful of shredded lettuce on top. Place patty on lettuce, and top with cucumber-tomato salad and top bun. Serve.
